Cheap Fun for Toddlers and Preschoolers
My husband sometimes accuses me of being a cheapskate. (Every marriage needs one, no?) Lately I've been excited about thrifty homemade fun. Here are some activities we've been enjoying: Board I have no idea where this crookedly cut chunk of wood even came f...

Winter Sanity Savers for Moms
As one of my friends recently stated, "I think our household has upgraded from 'cabin fever' to 'winter psychosis.' Personally, I was feeling fine until last week's string of events: an insomniac teething baby, multiple subzero days, a resident mouse who re...

Happy 2015!
Happy New Year to you and yours! We celebrated the first day of 2015 by cleaning the house from top to bottom (nothing like a fresh start!) and then rewarded ourselves by sledding at a nearby hill. I think Mike and I enjoyed it more than the kids did (sledd...

Reflecting on Fall
We Midwesterners were thoroughly spoiled by a long and lingering fall. Here were some of our favorite moments: Fresh Butterfinger doughnuts. How did we ever survive before owning a doughnut pan?  Cool mornings call for warm kitchens and an eager Cook's Help...

She's One!
Seems like just the other day she was a wee little thing sleeping in her rock-and-play. And now she's a jabbery, squirmy, motor-noise-making one-year-old! Rain was born with a calm countenance and wise eyes. Friends constantly say she looks like she could s...

Inseparable
My hands-down favorite part of parenting has been watching how much fun our kids have together. They are only fifteen months apart, and that gap seems smaller and smaller the older they get.  Yesterday Gray was tackling Rain, and I reminded him, "Be careful...

One of the most frequent ways I use essential oils in my household is in this spray. With two little kids underfoot, I am always wiping up some sort of mess! The recipe is so simple I almost feel silly writing it down. But since a few of you have asked for ...

A Tale of Two Sheepies
Gray's favorite stuffed animal is, hands down, his Sheepie. The problem is that Rain recently decided Sheepie is her favorite too. Since learning to walk, Sheepie has been her constant companion. She toddles through the house, Sheepie's body tucked into the...

Thankful
When I looked out the window and saw this idyllic little scene, I made a mad dash for the camera. My heart is full! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

A Year of Sundays
As the resident photography buff, I am the one behind the lens in most of our family shots. To remedy this, we decided to document Rain's first year of life by having Mike photograph Mama and Baby every Sunday. We missed a couple weeks here and there, but o...

Costco Apple Container Art
For the longest time, I felt guilty whenever I tossed one of these Costco apple containers into the recycling bin. Not just because they're a giant waste of packaging (not even getting into that) but because they're positively bursting with artistic potenti...
